My first name Almira has given a a friendly, likeable nature and person with this name could excel in artistic, dramatic and musical expression. Almira always has the resolve and vitality to put forth the effort necessary to fulfil her desires.

Though the name Almira creates the urge to understand and help people, that it causes an emotional intensity and sensitivity that is hard to control. And I agree with this statement on 80%. I think a name influences to the person’s character. But with this name I desire the finer things in life.
